This stunning story of sisterhood from the composer of DREAMGIRLS is based on the remarkable real-life story of Daisy and Violet Hilton. Identical ‘Siamese twins’ who were joined at the hip, the Hilton sisters grew up touring America in a travelling ‘freak show’. But when their spectacular talent and charm was discovered, they became a national sensation and the highest-paid stars of 1930s vaudeville.

Laura Bunting (Elphaba in Wicked; Maureen in Rent at Hayes Theatre Co) and Kerrie Anne Greenland (2015 Helpmann Award winner as Eponine in Les Miserables) take on these two extraordinary roles in the Australian premiere of the acclaimed Broadway musical. Daisy and Violet follow their dreams from the margins of society right to the very top, but for each of them one question still persists: ‘Who Will Love Me As I Am?’
